Being a college student is hard, and everyone needs support. LSC Navigators are here to assist with your needs as you successfully complete your journey. If you are a student who was involved in the foster care system and you're now attending Lone Star College or thinking about attending Lone Star College, we're here for you. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at LSC-Navigators@LoneStar.edu
The mission of the Lone Star College Navigators is to create a college-wide network of support to assist students who grew up in the foster or adoptive care system or are homeless to achieve educational success by focusing on recruitment, retention, and graduation.
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board partnered with Sam Houston State University, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), and other Texas agencies to create a short video describing the eligibility criteria for the Foster Care College Tuition & Fee waiver and how it can be used in Texas. The video is called, THECB Tuition and Fee Waiver.
